Given the cry raised by Israel’s enemies – and some purported friends like Britain and France – you might think that Trump had ordered bombs dropped on civilians. But the objections were not for any loss of life, but for the intent to move a building and treat Israel normally.
There is precious little reason to believe that any Palestinian state established in areas evacuated by Israel would not swiftly degenerate into a mega-Gaza overlooking greater Tel Aviv.
The Passport Office should immediately withdraw and repeal the special regulations in the Foreign Affairs Manual that instruct how to designate “country of birth” for citizens born in Jerusalem. A renewed passport for any U.S. citizen whose current passport specifies “Jerusalem” should automatically say “Israel.”
Dreidel Rabbi? Two years ago, CBS’s “Sunday Morning” came to our home to showcase my dreidels. Countless dreidels seen by millions of people! Yes, that’s me. I can walk most anywhere only to have a stranger approach me and ask, “Aren’t you the Dreidel Rabbi?”
America overwhelmingly opposes US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a new poll claims. Cause for concern? Not when you realize the poll was carried out by an anti-Israel professor who crafted the question so the results would be slanted in that direction.
One wonders if other religions ever had to take into consideration frequent swells of persecution and literal danger to life and limb and encode it into religious law. In too many times and places, being Jewish has been and still is an act of courage.

If only we would realize that every smack we receive is a gift in disguise, we would embrace those moments of challenge and cherish them.
The Maccabean revolt was not merely a struggle to revoke harsh decrees or secure freedom of worship. HaShem’s Divine blueprint for mankind demands Hebrew sovereignty over Eretz Yisrael
The Palestinians should beware. The world should beware. Push the Jews too far and you might just get a Jewish backlash, “Jewish Days of Rage,” today’s Maccabees in action.
Apparently, the media bias against Trump, the already existing anti-Israel bias and the ignorance of some in the media has resulted in a perfect storm of horrendously inaccurate stories.
Newsflash for journalists: There's nothing new on the Palestinian street. Threats of violence and walking out of any "peace process" is old, old news. Jerusalem is not on fire. Jerusalem is tense, and has long been so, because the Palestinians have not yet managed to come to terms with Israel's right to exist. That is the real story.
While Erdogan labels Israel an “occupier” it is Turkey that exceeds most countries in the world in that category, currently occupying half of Cyprus, Northern Kurdistan with its 20 million Kurds, and West Armenia.
